Kansas Department of Revenue Reports Increase in Tax Collections Blog Local News 11/03/2017 Tweet The Kansas Department of Revenue reports an increase in tax collections for the month of October. That is the second time this year that revenue beat projections. That didn’t happen a single time in 2016. Kansas will collect about $222 million more than previously projected over the next two years. What does that mean for the school district? Well, $222 million isn’t actually enough to reopen and fund the schools. They would actually need about $400- $600 million, so they are still short.
